What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I think Kevin, the branch manager is a great person. He’s always trying to do stuff around the facility. He’s one of the few branch managers that I’ve seen use a vacuum and clean around the floors to say the least.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I go to Southside YMCA because it is smaller and the staff know me by name.
It would be nice if someone could take a look at the electrical outlets in the women's bathroom. Only 1 outlet seems to work with a blowdryer. The other outlets are lose so the blowdryers don't stay plugged in. This makes it difficult when people work out in the mornings before work and get dressed at the gym.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I appreciate the child care and the women who run it- its a huge help for moms. I also like that multiple activities take place under one roof- its a work-out gym, a kids basketball game venue, a place to do pilates, swim or sit and chat with fellow patrons after any activity. I am grateful that the Y is a place for all ages and incomes to come together!

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

In particular, I like the "feel" of the Southside Y. It fits my personality well. I have tried some of the other area Ys but they are not as "comfortable" for me. The equipment and facilities at Southside meet my needs and are generally available. This is important to me since I prefer not attend structured classes.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

I LOVE the Y. I wish the women's locker room had things like ponytail holders, bobby pins, tampons/pads, Q-tips....just a few things that would be helpful that may have been forgotten when packing the gym bag! I go every morning and love the staff and the members that I am there with. Everyone is so friendly!

Maybe you guys should update the lifting equipment! A platform or two, maybe another squat rack! It would be AWESOME to see this place get an upgrade.

What do you like about our programs and facilities?

They have a lot to offer fitness equipment, fitness classes and extracurricular activity sports for the kids. Only thing, I don't like that since the flood the gym still is so small and nothing is being done to put it back in order.

The YMCA Americana is AMAZING! They provide numerous opportunities for the STAY AT HOME mom as well as the MOM ON THE GO! There are numerous opportunities to exercise and get into shape. Whether you like to exercise on your own or join a class offered by the Y, such kickboxing or yoga. They also provide great extracurricular activities for kids. Their childcare facility is great and the extracurricular activities such as cheerleading and soccer have been life changing for my children. YMCA Americana is where you want to be!
